“I live in Athens...trust me dont stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Had out of town guest who were on a budget. The had made reservations before asking me for suggestions. The hotel is old. Its been here since I was born and Im almost 50. Carpet is dirty and has a musky smell. The staff is nice but that certainly does not make up for the hotel conditions. I personally paid for my friends to upgrade to a better hotel. If you are looking for a nice hotel in Athens stick to the hotels that are close to Interstate 65.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with friends

This motel was very inexpensive and like I said in my title, you get what you pay for. Our room was quite large. Not many frills. There was however, a fridge and microwave. Brand new A/C and the internet was free. Everything was clean and in working order. If you're just looking for a cheap place to rest your head for the night, this place will suffice. Owners were nice and accommodating.

The Mark Motel is exactly what you would expect, Very low budget, small town motel. It kind of reminded me of my studio apartment from undergrad - really old, simple, one large room. They say its remodled, but I think their definition is new curtians and flat screen television. The wall unit a/c was brand new and worked like a charm. The shower could have used a deep scrub, but it was good enough for a shower after a long day of traveling. If you're really strapped for cash and just need a place to sleep for the night, this place wasn't bad.
